Song: Better Man                    
Band: Littlest Man Band
Album: Better Book Ends
Tuning: Standard 
Acoustic


This song extremely simple. The chords used are the following:

G:320033
Cadd9:X32033
C:X32010
Dadd4add9:X5403X

Quick note: the transition from G to Cadd9 is always this:
E|---3--3-----3-3-3-3---3---------3-3-3---|
B|---3--3-----3-3-3-3---3---------3-3-3---|
G|---0--------0-0-0-----0---------0-0-0---|
D|---0--------2-2-2-----0---------0-0-0---|
A|---2---2h3-3--3-3-----2---------2-2-2---|
E|-3------------------3-----------3-3-3---|

Also, in the chorus, Dadd4add9 doesn't slide back down to C until around the word "be"
but it's a long chord name and a pain in the ass to fit in there. Listen to the song,
you'll figure the strumming and everything out.

(s=slide to)
Intro during horn solo is just G to Cadd9 to G repeating

              G                        Cadd9               G
I'm not the sharpest shard of glass from this broken window

      G                                 Cadd9                       G
But there's a few things that I've learned that you might want to know

C
That misery is a talent you can hone

     G                      Cadd9               G
And sorrow is a product we all can't wait to own


C s Dadd4add9       Dadd4add9 s C      G             Cadd9     G
But I'm just trying to be a better man

G                     Cadd9                    G
Flesh and blood cover the statues on the street

         G                                Cadd9                     G
They'll treat you like a friend but they stare at you like fresh meat

C
And the porcelain teeth that smile in your face

     G                       Cadd9                   G
Can't wait for you to fall so they can take your place


C s Dadd4add9      Dadd4add9 s C        G          Cadd9         G
And I'm just trying to be a better man

C s Dadd4add9     Dadd4add9 s C          G        Cadd9         G
Yeah I'm just trying to be a better man

Horn solo: (is basically one verse and chorus without words)

G          Cadd9      G

G          Cadd9      G

C

G         Cadd9       G

C s Dadd4add9   Dadd4add9 s C        G      Cadd9      G

C s Dadd4add9   Dadd4add9 s C        G      Cadd9      G

G          Cadd9      G


G                          Cadd9                 G
Lie and cheat your friends while you still have time

G                               Cadd9                 G
And downplay the drama while you figure out a chever rhyme

C
And smile with a semi-sympathetic tone

G                              Cadd9                       G
Can't appreciate good friends until you find you're all alone


C s Dadd4add9  Dadd4add9 s C        G          Cadd9         G
But I'm just trying to be a metter man

C s Dadd4add9     Dadd4add9 s C    G          Cadd9         G
Yeah I'm just trying to be a better man

To end repeat G     Cadd9        G   and end.
